Kayla Itsines Discount and an Update

February 7, 2015

First things first: the Kayla Itsines discount. [DISCOUNT EXPIRED FEBRUARY 28th, 2015] <— UPDATE

For any newcomers you do not know who Kayla Itsines is, click here to read an interview I did with her. She is the mastermind behind a fantastic program called the ‘Bikini Body Guide’ (click here for my review) which I am currently following.

Kayla has been kind enough to give me a 10% discount to any of her guides which I want to share with you all! To get the discount code, all you have to do is subscribe to Honestly Fitness and you will receive the exclusive code in an email the following day. Remember to check for a confirmation email and check your junk mailbox in case it ends up there. You will NOT receive the email with the code otherwise.

If you do not receive the email within 24 hours, email me at honestlyfitness@live.com and I will send you the 10% discount code myself. This is a great deal as Kayla does not give these out often, and gives you the chance to see for yourself why I and so many others swear by Kayla’s workout and nutrition guides. The graphic below will take you to her website where you can buy her guides (they are EBOOKS).

An Update

I am so sorry for the lack of posts! This is my final semester and it has been killing me, plus I have some other personal issues to deal with (like taxes haha). I have so many ideas in my head, but it may take me a while to translate them into a blog post. I am proud of myself for sharing my perfect four ingredient pancake recipe with you all before life got too crazy. You should try them!!!

I am continuing to do Kayla Itsines bikini body guide and restarted with millions of girls around the world for The Kayla Movement. It has been quite exhilarating to redo the program (my third time!) with so many others and it has helped kept me motivated. I think I plateaued during the first four weeks so I consulted with some of my dear BBG friends and decided to be a little more strict with my food intake and to use heavier weights during the workouts. Fingers crossed this will help me yield the results I am after!

I also took the plunge and bought Kayla’s foam roller (which you can find on her website) because I have received questions regarding whether it is worth buying or not. I will be able to tell you all what I think in a few weeks once I have received it and tested it out.

How are all of you? How have your exercise routines been going and how are things like nutrition wise for you?

Meal Planning for The Kayla Movement

January 4, 2015

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of The Kayla Movement and officially start (re-start in my case) Kayla Itsines bikini body training guide on Monday, 5th January. In preparation for the coming week, I thought it would be useful for you and for myself to plan down what I will be eating this week. Useful for me because it will help me plan what to buy at the supermarket and give me structure to my week, and useful for you because I hope it will inspire you to try out some new meals and/or give you some guidance if you are new to making healthy meals. My Healthy on the Cheap article is also a great resource to planning healthy meals on a budget.

These meals have all been inspired by Kayla Itsines HELP nutrition guide (disclaimer: affiliate link which helps me pay for Honestly Fitness) and the Clean and Lean philosophy books by James Duigan.

Snack: 1 small nonfat latte and handful of nuts
Dinner: Shrimp stirfry with green beans, broccolini, chickpeas (i.e. garbanzo beans), and quinoa

I have decided not to plan anything just yet for the weekend to allow for flexibility in case I want to meet up with a friend for some food. I tend to meet friends for dinner so will usually have make breakfast and lunch similar to the ones I have planned above.

Also, as you can see, I repeat a lot of meals and snacks to make sure I do not waste any of the foods that I have bought. I also buy frozen shrimp and tilapia as it is much more economical and last ages. I buy fresh chicken but I freeze any chicken breasts that will not get used within the next 3 days and thaw them as needed. I also buy frozen green beans and corn (I buy a lot of frozen things don’t I?!). I tend to do groceries twice a week or more as needed so I do not waste any food or buy more than I need.

What are you planning to eat/make for this week?

I love knowing what you are all doing as I get ideas from you as well! Let me know in the comments below if posts like these are helpful to you or not. And don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook for more healthy foods ideas and healthy living tips (peppered with the occasional random comment) 🙂

The Kayla Movement

January 2, 2015

Happy New Year lovelies! I hope you all had your fill of holiday foods and indulgences and are ready to transition back into a healthier style of eating and living with The Kayla Movement. I know I am!

Fit and Healthy for 2015

For those of you who read Honestly Fitness regularly, you know that I am an avid fan of Kayla Itsines workouts (for those of you who have no idea who she is, click here). She announced on her Instagram that on Monday 5th January, 2015,  she and anyone else who wants to join will be restarting her Bikini Body Training Guide (BBTG or BBG) and creating the biggest worldwide team ever. So exciting, right?!

The Kayla Movement

I think this is a fantastic way to start the new year and to pave the path for a healthy lifestyle (or add a challenge if you already have a healthy lifestyle). Not only do you get 12 weeks worth of workouts (and an additional 12 weeks if you choose to continue on with her bikini body training guide 2.0, and a healthy eating guide, you will also get access to an amazing support group! The girls on Instagram who do Kayla Itsines’ workouts and follow her eating guide are some of the nicest girls you will ever meet. I posted a progress photo on Instagram and was so sure I would get mean comments but quite the contrary. Everyone has been so lovely and encouraging, which only makes me want to participate more and encourage other girls who have been brave enough to post their progress photos. You can find me on Instagram by clicking here.

How to join The Kayla Movement

If you want to join in The Kayla Movement, all you have to do is start her BBG 1.0 on January 5th. Whenever you upload a photo or discuss your progress on social media, simply hashtag it with #kaylaitsines #kaylasarmy #thekaylamovement and don’t forget to tag @kaylaitsines (and me too hehe, but not mandatory @honestlyfitness). Also, don’t forget to join the ‘KI BBG’ group on Facebook if you would like a support group on Facebook.
